We adopted my dear son when he was 15 months old. He was drug exposed to meth and crack and severlly abused an negleted. We were his 5th placement in his short life. He has always been aggressive and hard to handle. He was also labled as developmentaly delayed for not walking or talking when he came to live with us. A day after we had him he walked and a week later he started sayinig mama. We adopted another bundle of joy a year ago. Joshua my 3 year old is so violent with him and his two sisters. He has punctured the babies head with a fork, jumped on him mouth so hard it knocked his tooth loose, strangled him, jumped on him. He also screams so much during the day that his voice is hoarse at night time. He never has slept through the night. WE have to give him benedryl to get him to sleep every night. We started taking him to PDR a last week. The doctor diagnosed him with ODD, Intermittent Explosive Disorder (IED), and possible conduct disorder. The PDR stated that in his 20 years of doing this Josh is the most violent youngest patient he has ever treated. WE are going to a neurologist on Monday to possible get him on medication. They want to put him on Respridol maybe. Does anyone know anything about that? I am at the end of my rope. I feel like my kid is getting farther away from me. He can at times be very sweet and loveing. Please help me. Any and all suggestions are welcome.
